Applying for Admission

Applying for Admission

All residents looking to be admitted to Anzac Lodge need to have an Aged Care Assessment done. This is your ‘license’ to enter aged care. This can be organized through a social worker, your local doctor or Aged Care Assessment Team.

You will need to apply through Centrelink for an Assets Assessment Form prior to entering into care as it normally takes a few weeks for the result to be returned. This determines if you qualify for a government subsidy and the fees and charges you will pay. If you choose not to submit a Centrelink Assets Assessment Form, you will be liable for the maximum set of fees.

You are now ready to make an appointment to tour the facility during business hours bringing the above documents. If there are several key members (families / friends) involved in the decision making process for permanent placement, then please ensure they are all present for that tour.

From the time the room has been offered to you and you have accepted (after all the fees and charges have been negotiated), you have 7 days to move in. Billing starts from when the room is reserved.
